Consider the Lillets of the field...

Have you ever tasted the aperitif called Lillet? I have been somewhat intrigued by it lately and am so curious to try it. It's made with a blend of wine, orange liqueurs, and herbs. Lots of recipes have been popping up featuring the white wine or "blanc" version. Most of them are, of course, drink recipes. But not all. Check out the marshmallows...
Pronounced: lee-LAY. Ask for Lillet Blanc or Lillet Rouge, to specify the white or red wine-based version. Lillet Blanc is described as light and refreshing, while the Rouge is flavorful and intense. Both are best served over ice with a splash of soda... and don't forget the twist.
